britain to war over the fault in ireland. >> as in the uk, she was very tough on her opponents abroad. and she sent in the military to the faulkner islands immediately and won that war. she was applauded by many people. also northern ireland, she had a very hard stance. critics say she drove young catholics into the arms of the ira because of that. in attribute, one leader said she played a shameful role. she was divisive on the international stage as well. germany, obviously, will remember her for being opposed to the unification. she was open for enlargement, but very much afraid of the political union and afraid of a german dominance in europe. >> thank you very much for that. to talk about margaret thatcher's legacy here in germany, we are joined in the studio by our political correspondent, simon young. tanks for being with us. we know margaret -- thanks for being with us. we know margaret thatcher was in power at the end of the cold war, when divisions were eating -- ending in europe. she distanced herself from germany. how do germans view her? >> the tone in berlin has been ver

hire taxis, but there was also other good news for ireland -- privatization or higher taxes. it is a reward for ireland and portugal, a reward for their hard austerity measures. >> some worries about cyprus' bailout weighed on the markets on friday. we have this report from frankfurt. >> the rescue package for cyprus led to irritations, also here on the frankfurt floor, especially the discussions about the fact that maybe the money will not be enough to avoid bankruptcy of cyprus. it dragged down the mood on the frankfurt floor. the dax started nosediving, but the negative trend has been backed by new economic data from the u.s. consumer confidence and retail sales went down significantly, and this has been a bad surprise. maybe it is because of the fact that unemployment data in march has been weak. >> now for a closer look at those market numbers, we say in frankfurt where the dax closed the day sharply in the red, more than 1.5% lower. so much for the rally we have seen in the past few days. the downward trend continues in new york where trading is still under way, and so
